Do You Know This Bird?

This is Jewel.

I don't know Jewel.  I've never met Jewel but she is the inspiration behind Alex's Movie Night Birthday Bash coming straight to a living room near you --- well technically near me ---- on Saturday.

I've started to compile a few ideas and the favors I ordered arrived a couple of weeks ago.  They are very reminiscent of the favors we gave for Alex's party last year.  The fun stuff, I've got that covered.  Finding it at a massive deal?  Yeah, I usually have no problems there.  But when it comes to some of the other details, this is where I need a little help.

And this is where I tend to make the ridiculous mistakes parents make.

I do a Google Image search.  With my seven year old.  And things like this appear:

Parents: Google Image Searches are not for kids with wild imaginations.  Thanks to it, I will now be making what I can only predict will be a major blue frosting disaster.

You would think I would have learned my lesson back in November when we went looking online for a unicorn stocking cap.  Sounds innocent enough.  But then this happened....

Which led to this happening: 

Which now leads to this happening every time we leave the house: 

Yes, that's my kid.  In the unicorn head. 

So thus begins an adventure in something I can do but don't do really well: baking stuff.  Add to that: frosting stuff to look like a very specific character from a film.  But because birthday celebrations are kind of my jam, and she is kind of adorable I am going to go for it and see what happens.  

And rest assured there will be no more helpful image searches between now and then - just to be on the safe side.  It is her birthday afterall and while I can't entertain her every whim, I suppose I can try to bake instead of ordering cookies like I usually do.  Sometimes you can have your cake, but no matter what it looks, tastes or smells like -in this case - she is going to have to eat it too. 

Stay tuned to find out if this challenge is for the birds...
